No copyrights have expired on U.S. films released in 1964 or later.

This is from the 50s and it's TV.

You're absolutely and amazingly wrong.

The year 1965 wasn't in the 1950's.

And Rawhide ran from 1959 to 1965.

Renewal on U.S. films released in 1964 or later is automatic, so this would still be under copyright even if no renewal was filed.

So this statement is false:

Renewed in 1993 which keeps it out of PD.

And being a television show makes no difference.

And I answered my own question. Renewed in 1993 which keeps it out of PD.
